YES, really. Plus edge to edge displays are SO overrated! How are you supposed to hold the phone and actually use it if the whole damn thing is a screen!!?? Samsung and Apple have been chasing this pipe dream for years and the only difference is Apple actually came to their senses, and made the phone usable.
Actually, no this is a Nokia rip off from the Lumia 1520 days. Apple tried to appeal to the masses by making it slightly smaller (5.5-inch). But either way, Nokia had this long before any other competitors. And Nokia had sense to still make the phone usable (buttons and something to hold) and stylish (color).
No this is a blatant Microsoft ripoff. As soon as Windows Hello came out, Samsung could see nothing better than to try and copy it for their own uses, especially after the "7" debacle. I only wish that Microsoft would take them to court over this.
Another BLATANT Nokia and Microsoft ripoff. Once Samsung realized how much people would clamor for it, they decided to popularize it and claim it as their own.
Ahem, yes. Yes it is. LOL. See notes above.
My entire point of this discussion is that Samsung doesn't know how to invent anything new. They completely copy and use other companies ideas to their benefit, usually well trying to avoid patent infringement. Apple should have tore Samsung apart in that patent infringement lawsuit years ago, but unfortunately the United States' court system did not see it that way.
